    Minimize corners without cuts on already made bends.

    Lateral sides wrapped inside.

    Then bend the loose ends and refill.

    The lid is ready.

    Cut out a 21 × 21 cm square from the plain color cardboard and do the same manipulations as with the lid.

    By changing the size of the square and the color of the paper, you can easily make beautiful boxes in the right amount in a short time.
